I've fitted a lookup trie into a string 126023 bytes long; for the price of
those 126023 bytes, plus a few exception cases, and some tiny bits of C code
yet to be written, one can have smaller PDFs, considerably simpler application
code, and text extraction for all applications when using modern LGC fonts.

Admittedly, most Cairo apps aren't going to use it for typesetting efficient

Alright, well, I can patch my own or use something else. Thanks for
